There are a few things starting to kick off as the season commences, so a quick update and a warm welcome to the Day Sheet for our LTR students and families!
Dates for your Diary
Spring Training Subs for returning rowers
Spring training subs are now due for returning rowers.
LTR Camp parent help
LTR camp is a little under 5 weeks away, so it’s time to start getting organised. If you would like to be camp coordinator for LTR camp or parent help, then contact Stephanie: email@example.com
We’ll try to include a mix of experienced rower parents and novice rower parents. Other parents / families are more than welcome to make your own bookings for the camp if you want to see what goes on. If you mention that you are with OCRC when you book, then you should get a slight discount on your accommodation costs.
Starts Fri 28th Sept (7.30pm) to Tues 2nd Oct (2/3pm) and is held at the Wanganui River Top 10 Holiday Camp. An information sheet will be sent out in the next couple of weeks with all of the camp details. The camp provides an excellent opportunity to significantly develop rowing skills in a short period of time, in an environment conducive to good training as well as everyone having a lot of fun.
LTR camp regatta – there is a regatta on the last day of the camp, with novice rowers mixing with more experienced rowers. Parents are encouraged to attend and see the great improvement the rowers have gained over the camp duration.
Camp cost – is likely to be around $250 but will be confirmed soon in the information sheet.
The OCRC membership form and health form will be issued soon. This provides the parental consent and health profile. Everyone attending LTR camp must complete these 2 forms. If you are not attending LTR camp but want to continue with the rowing season, then you must also complete the forms.
A reminder about the bookfair taking place 15th – 16th Sept. Funds raised are used to help support our coaches in meeting out of pocket expenses through the summer rowing season and will also contribute to equipment maintenance. Funds raised reduce the overall season costs.
The bookfair committee will continue to contact the rowing group with information and to roster everyone into a job for that weekend. The main areas of help are the Friday night set up and Sunday pack down where we need many hands-on deck to make the job as efficient as possible. The Friday night set up will also require quite a few parent cars to help transport books to the Wharewaka that have been stored at various locations over the last few months. All help is much appreciated.
Book collection – please continue to collect books that you can donate to the book fair and bring to the Wharewaka on Friday 14th Sept from 6pm.
Book storage – post the book fair - if anyone has or knows of a location to store some of our left-over books after the bookfair, then please contact Rachael Martin firstname.lastname@example.org
We would like to save any unsold good quality books as a starting point for next year’s bookfair.
Stephanie Clark President of OCRC.
